Meriken Park - Review
In 1868, when Japan started letting in foreign tourists and visitors, this area was the wharf where the ships could come in. The name comes from the Japanese translation for 'American'. In the latter half of the twentieth century this became a very popular tourist area, thanks in no small part to the nearby Kobe Port Tower, the Kawasaki Good Times World and the Kobe Maritime Museum. In 1995 a massive earthquake struck the region, which devastated the wharf. It was rebuilt as a maritime park, and there is a memorial to the victims of the earthquake here. To the west of the Kobe Port Tower there is a pier that extends out into the sea.

Meriken Park, Kobe Reviews
The best place in Kobe to visit. But, the coastal area smells bad. Though, there are many good cruise ships but they very old. There is some good location for tourists to have memorable snaps. Especially, this place becomes so gorgeous at evening and night session. Anyway, Starbucks is alao there in an amazing location.
Great place to visit. Lots to see and do. There were markets on when we visited. Great displays in pavilions.
Very beautiful view both sea and city, clean environment, a little bit windy but awesome moment
Wonderful for a walk or just sit and relax with a drink. Beautiful scenery.
It's a waterfront plaza, quite a large space and decent views. Not amazing views, and this spot can be skipped if you're only in town briefly or something. Really exposed to wind whenever it's, well, windy.
